s3xmoditmania was how I first found out about Battle of the Bits in the first place (from reading Jimmyoshi's Mod Archive uploads and then finding a thread here). I've wanted to try it for so long, and while this may not have been a "major" s3xmoditmania, I'm still happy to have had the opportunity to compete. I feel like I've come far in my tracking skills since I first started a year or two ago, and this win tells me that as long as I keep working hard and trying out new things, I'll be capable of so much more.
